    Well, to give my work table a little diversity and change, I like to work on several projects at a time, this helps me keep my mind fresh and focused while creating. I find if I am working on the same thing for several nights in a row, it will tend to become more "work" than passion.

    So, in that respect, I've started a new addition to my WIP(s)
    One of my the most memorable G1 episodes to me, was the Autobot Spike / Autobot X episode. And since he is easily distiguished, and never made into a figure, I figured I'd kitbash the figure.

    I had some 'downtime' at the office today, and built this in illustrator. I'm planning to make this entirely out of styrene. Holding true to the episode, he will NOT transform, but will have tons of articulation instead.

    In a later phase, once completed, I will also create the 2 medical beds where he and Spike 'link up' to one another.

    Please check out the accuracy of my illustration, and give me feedback/opinions to what can be improved. He was hard to nail down, as in reality, every scene he's in, the original artists changed up some detail here and there.
